The way I did this with function_input_iterator is by:
1. Getting in touch with the maintainers and working the
implementation out through the mailing list.
2. Preparing the required changes (as patches that can be
submitted/applied to existing code in the repository) which include:
- The documentation.
- The actual code.
3. Wait for the maintainer to merge the changes implying acceptance
and then have it shepherded into a new Boost release.
Hope this helps.
